A rapid, scalable chemistry solver, SIMCENTER STAR-CCM+ for combustion, simulates combustion efficiently and accurately

More stringent restrictions are being placed on next-generation combustion systems due to stringent emissions regulations, a competitive economy, innovative fuels, and new fuel formulations. New technologies, such as additive manufacturing, provide limitless opportunities for redesigning the geometry of combustion chambers. Still, engineers without prior industry knowledge may find the new technologies too challenging to implement.

This calls for the use of digital twins. Simcenter STAR-CCM+ is a multi-physics computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tool that facilitates the creation of life-like, high-fidelity performance twins through a single integrated interface and a library of physical models.

How can Simcenter STAR-CCM+ address the issues found in next-generation combustion system innovation?

The effectiveness of today's simulation techniques in evaluating the performance of combustion systems is a significant challenge. To succeed, a simulation tool must generate high-fidelity analysis with a scalable system that can handle complex geometry in shorter periods, encouraging the exploration of novel designs.

Simcenter STAR-CCM+ has the following advantages:

  • enables automated reactor network emission profiles for combustion design

  • processes more solutions faster and maximizes computational resources with scalable chemical solvers

  • provides correct results with less effort by employing model-specific reactive-flow mesh adaption

  • combines multi-time scale method for conjugate heat simulations and LES for a high-fidelity answer
